I'm an indy promoter goof, not a performer. And while I don't use Chance, I would if my houses allowed for the added expense. If your "territory" was worth a dime, you would use any link to legitimize your company. Whether it be former WWF/WWE/WCW/ECW/NWA names, or whatever is popping the fans. While the current "NWA" is a far cry from the Crockett era, its still the same letters that wrestling fans still recognize. How else do you explain any promoters booking Adam Pearce worldwide? Sure, he was booker and spot ROH guy, but he's being booked because the people believe in that 10 lbs of gold and leather. Absorbed by wcw, hardly. While Crockett had the tv, Pro Wrestling Organization , LLC owns the title, lineage, and rights to the NWA namesake and title. When Flair left Crockett for McMahon, the globe dome was brought back to the remaining territories. Had the NWA died, ECW would have never had anything to build off of. The Jarretts would have had nothing to legitimize TNA (HA!), and even as recent as "The Shiek" using the NWA World Title to land bookings in Japan with Zero-1 and help launch Pro-Wrestling Zero-1 USA. For a company and group of titles that became dead 20 years ago, people still find ways to make it work for them. Maybe your "territory" might be worth booking a champ to put a shot in the arm or your "thriving promotion". Oh wait, that would make you an idiot mark like the promotions around the world that use the NWA namesake. Just a quick reminder: a mark is someone who has money to be taken advantage of for your own personal gain. Use the correct verbage if you are going to insult someone.
